that the world didn't forget about them. >> charlie: is the obama administration doing enough in terms of raising the issue of human rights? >> i think that they could be doing more. >> yeah. >> i think they could be doing more but aiven times looking in a broader context -- but oftentimes looking in a broader context of what the obama administration could be doing to help the green movement, we hear mixed feedback from iranians themselves as to the role the united states would like to play. some of the leaders of the opposition say they wouldn't like to see the united states be more outspoken but i think certainly the younger generation -- the young foot soldiers of this movement would like to see the u.s. more outspoken. >> charlie: i have asked this question. >> during the green movement protest last year, one of the slogans that people were chanting is, "obama, you're either with us or with them," meaning you take our side or you want to engage with the government" and i do believe that a lot of the green movement and opposition supporters believe that the obama administration has not done en
will explain. >> the obama administration continues to drop missiles on suspected terrorists even as the aclu and others try to get that strategy outlawed. is it legal? has been investigated? caution, you are about to enter the "no spin zone." "the factor" begins right now. >>> hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thank you for watching. president obama and war, that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. there's a lively debate about how committed barak obama is to defeating terrorism. some of his critics say he's not nearly aggressive enough in fighting our enemies. but the obama administration is badly damaged al-qaeda and the taliban by using drone missile attacks. in fact, reports today say those attacks are increasing because of al-qaeda threats against western europe. so it's hard to say exactly what kind of passion president obama has for the war on terror. and in an interview with bob woodward, he muddied the waters even further. >> i said very early on as a senator and continued to believe as a presidential candidate and now as president that we can absorb a terrorist attack. we'll
the public sector jobs like teaching and law enforcement. he says that explains the obama administration to use stimulus money to save jobs of public workers and believes they have a different take on taxes. >> they want better working conditions. where does that come from? from government spending and taxes that have to be levied on the private sector workers to pay for this. >> the president says his goal is rebuilding the middle class after years of union decline. he says a good job, good wages, secure retirement, healthcare benefits are union ideas but the unions lost much of their clout over the last two generations. their share of the workforce used to be three times as large. shannon? >> shannon: wendell goler at the white house. the president's next move to help the ailing economy involves the issues of tax cuts but exactly which taxes to cut and how to pay for the cut is a major bone of contention. chief washington correspondent jim angle explains. >> president obama's desperately searching for anything that would help the economy and reduce the possibility of deep democratic lo
. >>> a look at the headlines. the obama administration wants to keep national security intelligence secret by urging the dismissal of a suit filed against the u.s. government. and bishop eddie long is facing another allegation of sexual misconduct. a fourth lawsuit has been filed against the pastor. and a federal judge has ruled against a military's don't ask, don't tell policy. we'll hear from an openly gay former air force nurse who was just reinstated years after her discharge. >>> up first, national security and the case of yemeni american clairic al awlaki. the obama administration is asking the judge to dismiss a case filed on behalf of the cleric's father. chris, what is this suit about and why is this administration trying to have it dismissed? >> what's going on is the fact that the u.s. government is claiming that they have a state secret privilege. in other words, they feel that to grant this injunction would expose a lot of the ways in which the military and intelligence officials are operating around the globe to fight terrorists. you've got two issues here. on one hand, the a
healthcare. there are a lot of other things they need to do in reversing everything that obama administration does. that is the first thing they need to do is reverse obama policies. >> let's talk about healthcare repeal. healthcare reform, the plan, the act and its repeal. we have senator ron widen of oregon, a democrat. he wants to repeal or get rid of or not use the option of the mandate where you mandate every individual has to have health insurance. the senator wrote that into the law, as i recall. it seems like there is a swing, a big swing against healthcare reform. >> exactly. it's part of the campaign, stuart. that's what republicans need to be focussed on right now, is the campaign. and what congress will do in the next four or five weeks. leader boehner put out five points of what they need to do in four weeks. they have the democrats backing up and on defense. they need to extend the tax cuts for, the bush tax cuts for three years. they need to freeze spending. they need a moratorium on all new regulations for a year. they need to stop the bail-out. that's what they ought to be ta
movement. do you think the obama administration and the president himself understands that the left's fer racist -- ferocious attacks have helped the tea party. because they have been demonized as racist and stupid and using obscene terms to describe them that has all helped the movement. am i wrong? >> no. you are not wrong. i think this strategy of trying to belittle the tea party is very foolish. it was interesting, bill, over the weekend to hear former president clinton say that the democrats ought to listen to the tea party movement. now, he said some other things as well. but he remembers what happened to him 16 years ago. the country had begun to turn against the democrats and their president, bill clinton. and he went out and ran all over this country, bill, i will never forget it because i was covering it, against what he called the contract on america. that was the platform of the republican house candidates who h. come out on that fall it was a whole collection of different items. they were all popular. he tried to demonize what they were doing and, thereby, and it was a total
in the in-fighting in the the obama administration -- in the obama administration. >> the chief executive from unicredit, alessandro profumo, has lost a boardroom battle to keep his job. alessandro profumo will be replaced in the anteroom by an austrian natural -- will be replaced in the interim by an austrian national. >> all his threats of resigning that have come and gone in the past -- his bluff has now been called on this libyan deal. there has been political pressure, as well, to move alessandro profumo. it is the biggest private bank in italy. it is the 10th biggest bank in europe. the libyan deal was simply a deal that went too far. he is simply out of a job. >> deutsche bank has warned that profits are suffering from a downturn in trading. germany's biggest bank is raising just over 10 billion euros. third quarter net profits will be significantly below last year's. worldwide recession has had little effect on shoppers. the largest fashion retailer has declared a jump in net profits. it is benefiting largely from expansion in asia. europe's most debt-ridden nations continue to ta
killed. the negotiations became increasingly difficult. however, the obama's administration's proactive stance has helped to bring both sides back to the negotiation table. >> in the studio, covering the middle east peace process. yes, why are the direct talks being held now? >> the u.s. government pushed hard for the talks. the middle east peace process has been a top diplomatic priority for president obama. obama wanted to see progress on the issue before the midterm elections in november. the u.s. also faces two deadlines in september. one is the end of the indirect talks between israel and the palestinians that began in may, and are being mediated by the u.s. and on september 26th, israel's partial freeze on settlement construction will expire. for these reasons, the obama administration needs to create a new negotiation framework in early september. >> and that may be the u.s. intention, but why did the palestinians and the israelis agree to meet face-to-face? >> israel most likely judged that it would be unwise to reject the talks and strain bilateral relations with the u.s. at a
, as u.s. mediators try to bridge the gap. the obama administration is racing to keep the mid east peace talks alive. >> we're at a pivotal juncture in that region. it's important for israel, it's important for the palestinians and we think it's essential that they keep on moving forward. >> reporter: israeli settlors cheered sunday as a ten-month freeze on settlement construction in the west bank came to an end. crews didn't waste time getting to work pouring the foundation of a new building but palestinian leaders have threatened to walk away from negotiations if construction resumes. president mahmoud abbas hasn't yet carried out that threat but said sunday there is only one choice, either the settlements or peace. over the weekend, secretary of state hillary clinton tried to help forge a last-minute deal. she spoke twice by phone sunday to israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. netanyahu imposed the moratorium last november to try to get palestinians back to the bargaining table. he says he wants to continue negotiations but rejecting calls by president obama and palestinian lead
and in washington, they're just waking up to the news that the obama administration is ramping up its efforts to inject momentum into middle east peace negotiations. today, hillary clinton has been in the west bank for talks with the president of the palestinian authority, president abbas. that follows talks between a bas and netanyahu yesterday. >> pressing on with the american peace mission, hillary clinton met the palestinian president. >> the united states and all of us led by president obama are very committed and determined to work toward a peace agreement through direct negotiations that lead to an independent, sovereign, viable palestinian state that realizes the aspirations of the palestinian people. >> it was all smiles on wednesday as tt the israeli prie minister's residence. no details have emerged of the substance of their talks. expectations in the region are extremely low. overnight, a reminder of what is at stake. this is the aftermath of an israeli air strike and the gaza strip. the military says this was weapons facility. the israeli air force bombed targets in the far south
you very much. this morning the obama administration is celebrating at least a temporary legal victory when it comes to stem cell research. >> eric, it's a victory for now. just hours ago the u.s. court of appeals put a temporary hold on a ruling by a lower court judge that blocked government funding for stem cell research. it will stay in place while the justice department reviews this case. the justice department argued that stopping federal funding could cause irreparable harm because it could force scientists to halt some stem cell research projects abruptly. a judge blockeds government funding after a lawsuit was filed by two researchers working on alternatives to stem cell research. the suit claimed federal tax dollars should not be used on research that involved potential destruction of human embryos. no word yet how long the u.s. appeals court will need to reveal the merits of the obama administration's position on this case. of course, we'll be continuing to follow this story closely all day. that's the way it is right now. cheryl, b

that the obama administration did not prosecute three black panthers because of reverse racism megyn kelly is on the case. >> i think there are way too many undocumented mexican workers here in the united states. it's time to roll up our sleeves and face this issue mano whatever the spanish word for mano is. >> bill: why is he testifying in front of congress and why are we paying for it? is this a joke? >> please don't make me do this again it is really, really hard. >> bill: perino and marshal will have analysis. >> jon, the folks are the normal people. >> is beck teed off that colbert and jon stewart will hold a rally much like he did? >> >> bill: caution, you are about to enter not spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the black panther polling place story explodes. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. back in january of 2009, three black panthers were charged with violating the voting rights act. that civil action stemmed from two black panthers standing in front of apology place during the presiden
the obama administration has increased spending far more than any other administration in reported history. we'll have the grim statistics and dick morris will analyze. >> leave us alone! leave us alone! >> what is the truth about anti-muslim sentiment in america? is it rising? is there danger? we'll have a special report. >> i don't believe anything that comes out of his mouth. there it is. >> and dennis miller will react to al sharpton's criticism of glenn beck and his washington rally. it is up to us! >> caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. "the factor" begins right now! >> hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the essential problem with president obama, that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. my upcoming book "pinheads and patriots, where you stage in the age of obama" zeros in on how the president's policies directly affect you and there's no better place to start than with your money. according to the census bureau, federal domestic spending increased a record 16% in 2009. standing now at $3.2 trillion. not since world war ii has
in fighting our enemies. but the obama administration is badly damaged al-qaeda and the taliban by using drone missile attacks. in fact, reports today say those attacks are increasing because of al-qaeda threats against western europe. so it's hard to say exactly what kind of passion president obama has for the war on terror. and in an interview with bob woodward, he muddied the waters even further. >> i said very early on as a senator and continued to believe as a presidential candidate and now as president that we can absorb a terrorist attack. we'll do everything we can to prevent it, but even the 9-11, even the biggest attack, that ever took place on our soil, we absorbed it and we are stronger. this is a strong, powerful country that we live in and our people are incredibly resilient. >> that quote is contained in the new book and the words have drawn anger from those who dislike the president's policies. >> i think that may be the most outrageous thing that's been reported about this book. how can an american president say that as if he's a detached observer and doesn't care about americ
for a lot of people, a party for the obama i administration? >> it already is. part of the middle class tax cuts were extended to take this uncertainty off the table. we understand the larger context of tax reform. we have to deal with emt. it is serving its purpose now that it was not meant to serve. a lot of the wealthiest americans did not bring down their tax to zero. it is now solidly within the middle class. we addressed that solidly year after year. it is time to take it head-on. the president has included it in his budget. it makes good sense to give the american people a view into how expensive this is and the fiscal discipline it requires to take on this. it is a priority for us. >> you talk a little bit about the larger picture of tax reform policy. do you foresee the obama administration in the next year moving forward with larger tax reform policies? >> as you know, the president said that two groups, one which delivered its report a couple of weeks ago on its recommendations with respect to tax reform. it is a very solid report, their identification. then there is the fiscal c
and peace report. i'm amy goodman. the obama administration has urged a federal judge to throw out a lawsuit challenging the administration's assertion that it and assassinate u.s. citizens anywhere in the world. earlier this year, the obama administration authorized the cia to capture or kill anwar al loti, an american-born cleric who is believed to be hiding in yemen. with the help of the american civil liberties union and the center for constitutional rights, his father asked a federal judge to issue an injunction and force the administration to publicly reveal its criteria for determining who can be assassinated. in court papers filed on friday, the obama administration asked the court to dismiss a lawsuit without hearing the merits of the claims citing state secrets. the aclu and center for constitutional rights criticized the obama administration's stance. in a statement, the group said -- a military tribunal will begin today for the first of 12 u.s. soldiers accused of forming a secret kill team that allegedly blew up and shot afghan civilians at random and collected their fingers as
. the obama administration have had thin skin, been reactionary and it's all been talk about what they have done wrong. >> larry: did he run better than he governs? >> oh, yes. >> larry: what do you make of that? how do you read that? >> he ran basically as a moderate democrat. he has this lovely family. he's a nice speaker. he looks like a regular guy. >> larry: let's change up those three things. >> from some of our perspective, he's a nice guy, buddies with bill ayers and governing the way bill ayers would have. >> larry: you're still on that. >> that script is like two years ago. his buddies is bill ayers. >> what has he done that bill ayers would not have done? >> ann, bill ayers is a far left person, closer to me than he is to president obama. president obama is a centrist. >> larry: he got elected since bill ayers. he was elected after bill ayers. >> what do you mean. >> larry: after bill ayers came on to the scene. >> what i'm saying conservatives keep bringing up, for example, more americans now think that obama is a muslim than did, you know, six months ago. usually the truth move
to make progress in these talks is for the obama administration to pressure israel. and, there is nothing to pressure the palestinians about. mahmoud abbas has no power, to ability to make commitments, to ability to make concession, no ability to care through on them and so when you are in that kind of negotiation the temptation would be to lean on the responsible party, in the case, israel and i think that carries potential downside, for secretary clinton. >> eric: and there willed be someone else in theme, finally, or not in the room, hamas and they killed four innocent israelis, a 25-year-old pregnant woman in advance of this. how can anything be achieved if hamas... >> they remain terrorist group and are a terrorist mini-state on israel's border and abbas cannot commit hamas for supporters including iran and what that means is these negotiations, in effect, are just a charade that is going on, to satisfy i think the pressure of the -- to pressure the administration -- the pressure the administration already put on israel. >> eric: former ambassador john bolt into the u.n., thank you s
and extends from the government. host: obama administration intensified efforts in sudan. can you comment on how there has been a policy shift since president obama took office? how are things different now than what they were then? guest: one problem is the caption expectation. he took a strong line in criticized the bush administration saying, you are not doing enough on sudan. he promised a no-fly zone and take more robust action against the government of sudan. they have done the opposite. many activists are concerned that they have used all carrots and no sticks. people who worked in sudan for many years no the government cannot be trusted in sudan. there are gaps in the expectations of what this administration should do. it took a long time to come up with a sudan policy review. it took more than nine months to come out with a policy that would use sticks and carrots. they lost their momentum during a time when they were doing the review. that has been a challenge as well. with all carrots and no sticks, it leads to infighting within those. we need to get through these elections and
. this is not an ideological play. this is a warning. the obama administration is running up debt in an unprecedented way and if it continues, the united states will go bankrupt. that could mean that the dollars you and i are saving will lose much of their value. that could mean a depression. if foreign investors in america pull their money out. now, that's speculation, of course, but nothing good comes from bankrupt. -- bankruptcy. and that's where the nation is headed. and the folks seem to know it. new gallup poll says 50% of americans now trust republicans on spending while just 35% trust democrats. a whopping 15 point difference. and a new poll in ohio done a democratic company, public policy polling says that the folks who live in that state would rather have george w. bush back in the white house than continue with barack obama. the number 50-42. that's stunning! because ohio went for obama in 2008. as i write in "pinheads and patriots" barack obama has allowed his ideology to overwhelm his common sense. he's now listening to the far left elements in his party and in the media. if you can believe
are a representative of that and brazil is a representative of that, and they argued that the obama administration so far was missing an opportunity to communicate to latin america, both its leaders and its people that it understood where you were in your history and that you were, in a sense, in a growth period. >> i agree with that. i think that the u.s. should pay attention. not only pay attention but do a better job. for instance, i think that the same thing that president obama did in ghana when he made a speech to the african world, or in egypt when he made a speech to the muslim world, he should do the same thing with latin america. i have invited him to come to chile and try to start a new age in the relation between latin america and the u.s. we're on the same continent, and still we are not really working together as we should. >> charlie: the secretary of state came to latin america. >> yes. >> charlie: and that sent a signal. >> that is a signal. but i think that there are so many things that we can do together. >> charlie: trade -- trade is a place to start. >> trade is one point. invest

the white house as it is or going to a republican administration, they're overwhelmingly in favor of obama. >> reporter: as for the grumbling over reform, the attention should be on result. >> the president always said his number one priority the students, making sure the students get an excellent education and people who share the same goal can sit around the table and we can work together. >> reporter: when the president and his education secretary praised a rhode island school district for firing all the teachers at a poorly performing school, that can make things a little tense around the table, bret. >> bret: make emanuel live on the north lawn. thank you. americans are about to get a jarring new look at public education and you may not like what you see. correspondent shannon bream tells us about a new effort to fix the system many people feel is in need of major repair. >> even kids are getting stupider every year or something is wrong behind the education system. >> reporter: the man behind the explosive new education documentary waiting for superman, says it's the latter. david
